Organic Dry Bean Discussion

February 9, 2015

Organic Dry Bean Discussion

The demand for organic dry beans in the Northeast exceeds the supply. Beans are being shipped from the Midwest to help meet the need. While there are a handful of growers already producing organic dry beans in NY it is a very small percentage of the total dry bean production in the state. Michigan produces about 9,000 acres of organic dry beans. The interest in this topic is broad based, and includes NY growers, shippers, a processor, brokers, and the Northeast Organic Farming Association of NY.

The Cornell Vegetable Program is organizing a discussion on the potential opportunities and challenges of increased organic dry bean production in New York State. The goals of this discussion are to:
 Explore the demand for increased organic dry bean production;
 Discuss how organic dry bean production is different from conventional production, and how dry bean production is different from soybean production;
 Learn the details of organic certification of farms, and of handling/cleaning facilities; and
 Brainstorm how to match potential organic dry bean production with the capacity of organic cleaning/shipping facilities.

All interested dry bean and field crop growers and shippers are welcome to attend. There is no charge but preregistration is requested - preregister online or contact Carol MacNeil

JOB POSTING: Onion Crop Scout

Be a Vital Part of New York Onion Production!

We are looking for someone who appreciates agriculture to scout commercial onion fields in Oswego Co. and/or Wayne Co. for 13 weeks during the summer, maximum 19 hours/week, who would return to the seasonal position annually.

As an Onion Crop Scout for the Cornell Vegetable Program (CVP), you will independently scout 11 commercial onion fields collecting data on insect pests, diseases, weeds and crop stage/quality. Scouting data will be summarized into a preliminary report which is finalized by Cornell's Onion Specialist. Growers use the scouting reports to inform their spray decisions, which enables an integrated approach to pest management. Your hard work will ensure grower engagement, implementation of research-based recommendations, and early detection of emerging issues. It is the "beating heart" of CVP's onion program.

Pay: $18.50/hr. No benefits. Personal mileage will be reimbursed at the federal rate.

Key Qualifications & Skills:
  • High School diploma and 6 months experience in an agriculture setting, or the equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Must be able to meet the travel requirements of the position and have reliable transportation as well as have and maintain a valid and unrestricted New York State driver's license.
  • Visual concentration and attention to detail are required to detect pests and pest damage.
  • Able to work independently in collecting and summarizing data.
  • Must be able to work outdoors in all types of weather.
  • Proven experience in communicating effectively, both written and oral.
  • Preferred: Experience working with plants, plant disease and other pest identification.
Training will include being accompanied by a veteran onion scout for the first season with the intention of scouting independently in the second year, and ideally for several more years after.

Flexible on start and end dates, day(s) of week you work, and whether Oswego or Wayne or both counties are scouted. Our priority is finding someone who will return to the position annually.
